Gorge Road is a great place. We are very lucky, because we don't have to live in town and have annoying problems - car noises, early wake-ups, too many streets, and all this other unpleasant stuff. Gorge Road is not a big community, which is good, because it is easy to get around. We have friendly neighbours and have huge paddocks to play in, which is great since we (probably) have motorbikes.
Gorge Road also has a school. It is great, and has lots of friendly pupils and teachers. Our school is friendly, and we work well together. We have children from other countries attending our school as well, such as: the Philippines, Indonesia, and other countries. I love my school, and I try as hard as I can to keep it tidy and to work really well.
